2022 Hardware Trends
As we look to the New Year, with it brings a whole new direction of design. From Insta-worthy interiors to stand-out finishes, we’ve curated five of the top hardware and electrical trends that we expect to see thrive in 2022.
The Trend for Brass Finishes
Brass has been big in the interiors world for a while. With its elegant, shining finish, gold is guaranteed to bring balance and harmony into interiors. From Polished, Antique and Satin Brass variations, designers and homeowners can choose from a naturally aging finish, to a look that’s bright, shiny and uplifting, depending on their style.
Whether you choose to pair gold finishes with a sage kitchen (the hottest kitchen trend prediction for 2022), or opt for a classic shade of sumptuous dark blue, brass will pair perfectly thanks to its warming tones and beautifully contrasting yet timeless appeal.
Choose Slim Profiles
Considered design is essential when finishing a project. Electricals become slimmer in 2022, with the desire to create sleek and minimalist interiors. Choose statement fittings with ultra-slim profiles and let the beauty of the solid brass adorn walls with a natural elegance.
Mix and Match Details
With so many finishes to choose from, it can be tricky to choose the right one. For a luxurious touch, opt for a combination of finishes. Think Antique Brass with its dark, aging finish for the backplate with inserts in black from our Windsor Range to add a subtle on-trend contrast. For more showstopping interiors designed to wow, opt for a white base with Satin Brass switches from our Seville Range for a distinctive look and feel.
Dark and Dramatic Finishing Touches
There’s no denying that Matt Bronze accessories have been rising in popularity over the past year. Ideal for contemporary homes, this sleek and on-trend finish is perfect for adding a modern touch to spaces, whilst creating contrast that is guaranteed to catch the eye.
We’re noticing a big trend for slatted design in 2022 with texture stealing the spotlight. Designers will be drawn to ridged details, whether it be bold kitchen cabinets in a slatted wooden style, or a to nod to the trend with a ridged door pull, adding a linear touch to kitchens and bathrooms is guaranteed to grow in popularity next year.
With trends constantly evolving, designs changing and new finishes becoming available, choosing cabinet hardware and electrical accessories is an area not to be overlooked. The importance of these finishing touches can make or break a design, so be sure to take note of the trends and choose an on-trend yet high-quality finish that will be sure to stand proud in your décor scheme.
